A Quote by Walt Whitman on earth, light, and space

To me every hour of the light and dark is a miracle,
Every cubic inch of space is a miracle,
Every square yard of the surface of the earth is spread with the same.

A Quote by Walt Whitman

Wisdom is not finally tested in schools, Wisdom cannot be pass'd from one having it to another not having it, Wisdom is of the soul, is not susceptible of proof, is its own proof, Applies to all stages and objects and qualities and is content, Is the certainty of the reality and immortality of things, and the excellence of things; Something there is in the float of the sight of things that provokes it out of the soul.

A Quote by Walt Whitman

Oh Me! Oh Life!  of the questions recurring,

                                  Answer
That you are here - that life exists and identity,
That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.
